Edwards Reimbuses Campaign for Haircuts (Preening Breck Girl Forced to Cough Up the Cash! LOL!!!)
Breitbart ^ | 04/19/2007 | AP/Nedra Pickler

WASHINGTON (AP) - Democrat John Edwards is trying to get out of a hairy situation, reimbursing his presidential campaign $800 for two visits with a Beverly Hills stylist. Two $400 cuts by stylist Joseph Torrenueva, who told The Associated Press that the former North Carolina senator is a longtime client, showed up on Edwards' campaign spending reports filed this weekend. Edwards spokesman Eric Schultz said it never should have been there.

"The bill was sent to the campaign. It was inadvertently paid," Schultz said. "John Edwards will be reimbursing the campaign."

Edwards is also the subject of a popular YouTube spoof poking fun at his youthful good looks. The video shows the candidate combing his tresses to the dubbed-in tune of "I Feel Pretty."

Federal Election Commission records show Edwards' campaign also spent $250 in services from Designworks Salon in Dubuque, Iowa, and $225 in services from the Pink Sapphire in Manchester, N.H.

Schultz said those services were legitimate campaign expenditures to prepare Edwards for media appearances.

Political candidates often have hair and makeup done before media appearances. Edwards rival Hillary Rodham Clinton got some attention last year when her campaign paid $2,500 for two hairstyling sessions that the campaign classified as media production expenses.

Bwhahahaha! I can just see him licking his finger and seeing which way the wind blows.

I can't believe even the loony left considers him a viable contender as the worlds most powerful person.

Hey Silky Pony, better find out who paid it, call them an imbecile and fire them.  They obviously come from "The Other America", stupid peons.

If what I just wrote made you sad or angry,
it was probably just a joke.

There are two Americas: one that gets $10 haircuts and an infinitely smaller America that gets $400 haircuts.
How utterly embarrassing. He should go home to his mansion and forget about running for president. He is a bigger sissy than Bill Clinton, who only got $200 haircuts.

Bill had a few of those too, but I don't think the 'sessions' had anything to do with hairstyling.

He doesn’t get it. It’s not about who paid $400 for his haircut; it’s that he’s a preening little prissy boy who WOULD GET a $400 haircut. Guess which America the Breck Girl lives in.

Silky Pony (D-NC) is a "longtime client" of a Beverly Hills hair stylist?

My, my, my..... That's a mightly long way to go for a haircut. I guess only the very, very rich can afford it.

As if his "common man" image needed any more tarnish... LOL!

What kind of a penis head pays $400 for a haircut?

That’s enough money for a lot of haircuts for me. That’s probably several years of haircuts for me.

When I was young (er) and had long hair and was on the prowl for pretty women, I might have gotten a few $40 or even once a $50 haircuts (usually with a glass of cheap wine) but I sure as heck don’t do it anymore. I can’t stand to sit still that long and have somebody fuss over me.

Besides, a haircut is not going to get me laid now anyway.

It’s down to the 7th St. Barbershop and “next”.

I go to Jack’s up in Baden, He has been cutting my hair for 40 years. His shop is in the back of his garage,he is a swell guy ,folksy in fact he doesnt put his shoes on until late November when it gets warm, but he wont cut hair until he put’s his smock on. Get a great cut for $8.50 and when Jack talks about poor people he knows what he is talking about, Unlike the $400 dollar hair cut Breck Girl.

Paying $400 dolars for a haircut is sinful.

The only difference between a good haircut and a bad one is only two weeks anyway.

$800 dollars a month for haircuts would make a house payment for most of the people Edwards calls poor.

A lady down the street from me, 80 years old ,lives off her $450 dollar a month Social Security check. Of course she doesnt have an indoor swimming pool and a basketball and racketball court in her home like John-boy.
